• Summary

    Climate change represents the region's most important issues affecting food security, including food, feed safety, plants and animals. Globally, tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) is considered one of the main strategic vegetable crops. Tomato constitutes an essential part of the Egyptian diet, it can be consumed fresh in a vegetable salad or as an ingredient in multiple meals, even in soups and beverages. Tomatoes fruits are rich in bioactive components as lycopene and other carotenoids, flavonoids, vitamins such as ascorbic acid (C), phylloquinone (K1), riboflavin (B2) and folic acid (B9), and minerals as potassium, copper, iron, phosphorous. The goal of this study was to first address whether the geographical cities (15 Provinces in Egypt) of tomato production under climate factors (Temperature, Humidity, Light time and Rainfall) could generate a different composition of (poly)phenol able to effect on their biological activity as well study nutritional composition before tomato consumption. Secondly, assessment the greenhouse gasses (GHGs) including (CO2, N2O, and SO2) and ecosystem soil like (Ash, pH, Salinity and Moisture) during ripening tomato crop. Finally, understanding the effect of temperature and humidity a key’s factors of climate change on tomato crop in three provinces pre-selected based on nutritional composition and antioxidant capacity.
